Just a little bit (of trans fat)...

Petrol PumpAfter knowing the evildoing of trans fats, some people asked me if it’s alright to continue eating, say fast food, but on occasional basis. For example, instead of once or more weekly, now change to once every fortnightly or monthly.

Do you drive a car? Do you know what runs a car? Yes, car runs on petrol. When fuel level in a car is low, we drive the car to the petrol station to fill in petrol, so that the fuel level is up again and we can continue driving the car. Do we fill the car with liquid other than petrol?

Imagine this: Every time when we pump petrol to the car, we mix the petrol with one small cup of plain water, or coffee, or tea, or coke, can the car still run? Yes, it can, at first. Continuing to mix the petrol with plain water (or any other liquid) once in awhile thereafter, do you think the car will break down one day because of what we fill it up with?

Now, have you got the answer to the question at the beginning of this post?

When car breaks down or koyak, we can change to a new one. And this time, we’ll never feed it with other stuff except with petrol. But can we change a new body when our body breaks down and let everything restarts again?
